Pheon Decals 1/32 Sopwith Dolphin Markings


Aftermarket specialist Pheon Decals has released two new sheets of markings for Wingnut Wings’ recent 1/32 Sopwith Dolphin (see p.14 in June issue for a full build of this kit).

32077 Sopwith 5F.1 Dolphin Volume 1, displays Pheon’s usual hallmarks, with superb colour profiles and plan/underside views on thick, gloss paper, solid research and superb decal printing. Eight PC10-coloured airframes are catered for, all being from 1918, and some having extra colour accents (blue/grey/red) to enliven the PC10 and doped linen.

32078 is even more generous with ten liveries, mostly for 1918 examples, but also represented is the fourth Dolphin prototype.

Here are the liveries in detail:
